In the dead of winter, a trio of summer athletes blasted to a world championship podium Thursday.

The team of Gillian Carleton (Victoria, BC), Jasmin Glaesser (Coquitlam, BC) and Laura Brown (Vancouver, BC) won the bronze medal in the women’s team pursuit at the 2013 UCI Track Cycling World Championships in Minsk, Germany.

Carleton and Glaesser also won bronze in the team pursuit at the London 2012 Olympic Games and at the 2012 World Championships where the third rider was Tara WhittenBrown had been the alternate both times after being part of the team pursuit at the 2010 and 2011 World Championships where Canada finished sixth both times.

Canada beat Poland handily in the bronze medal race. This was Canada’s first medal of the 2013 UCI Track Cycling World Championships.

This was the last major event at which the women’s team pursuit will consist of three riders over a distance of 3000m.  Starting with the 2013-14 season, the women’s event will match the men’s and feature four riders per team over a distance of 4000m.
